  • Only 12 ladies will be selected to participate in Perfect Pinup Wilmington.
  • This year’s Perfect Pinup Wilmington theme will be WWII. Each contestant will wear family-friendly appropriate outfits to best fit this theme. (No bathing suits, costumes or lingerie will be permitted. All outfits must be pre-approved should you be selected to be a contestant).
  • Our emcee will be the one and only Joe Pepitone!
  • There will be a brief question and answer portion. Each contestant will be asked a simple question about pinup, vintage or car kulture.
  • Each contestant will be judged on her outfit, hair & makeup, posing, and how she achieves the pinup style overall.
  • Points will be added from the judges’ panel, as well as her social media involvement.
  • Additional points will be added to the contestant’s final score based on her fundraising efforts.



A pinup’s job is not complete unless she is doing something to better her community. Just as the real pinups provided support for our servicemen in various ways, it’s my personal belief that this should still hold true today.

Semper Fi Fund is a non-profit that is dedicated to providing financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured service members and their families. As a contestant, you will help to raise funds for this wonderful organization, and here’s how:

A booth will be set up with 12 ammo cans (one for each contestant) to collect donations at the booth. For every dollar, one vote will be given to that contestant. The contestant who raises the most funds will receive extra points on her total score from the judges and social media points. No money raised will be shared with any contestant, myself, or anyone involved — it all will go 100% to Semper Fi Fund. Additionally, there is no limit on how many votes a person may purchase. Contestants may also purchase votes for themselves.




  • Entrants must be 18 or older to participate in Perfect Pinup Wilmington.
  • Be Involved. Once your entry is accepted and announced, it is expected that you will promote your involvement in the contest with the graphics created for the event.
  • Be present. Contestants must be available on the day of the event, for the entirety of the event. Please report to the Perfectly Pinned Up booth and check in no later than noon.
  • Appropriate attire is required. All outfits for the contest must be approved prior to the event. Once approved, you may not change your outfit or show up in something else.
  • Remember, this is a family-friendly event. Swearing, drinking, or any suggestive behavior will result in disqualification.
  • We are women who uplift each other. Any negative behavior or any bashing towards other contestants by you or your entourage will result in disqualification.
  • Smile, have fun, and remember why you are here! You were CHOSEN to be a part of this contest, and you will get all day to shine, be glamorous, meet lots of other people, and help out a wonderful organization.
